Ice... Ice... Baby...

I remember shopping for my wedding accessories and the hardest decision was "what jewelry should I wear?" I looked everywhere for the perfect look including Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, Lord & Taylor and even Zales. But I needed something elegant, classic and not overwhelming.  I was having a beach ceremony and wanted the jewelry to reflect the laid back feel with an elegant touch.  What attracted me the most were diamond studs, about 2 carats or so. But unfortunately, I did not own a pair or on my tight budget could I splurge and buy myself a pair either. So I settled on CZ's which looked great! 

Fast forward to the year 2008 and whaalaa... some genius realized that if I bride could get her hands on real diamond pieces for her wedding day (like celebrities do for most events) and then return them after they would have a thriving business... and so 
Adorn Brides was created!  It is similar to the website Bag, Borrow or Steal. Where you rent designer handbags, sunglasses etc. at a weekly rate and return them when you are either tired of the look or see something else you have been salivating over .  Back to Adorn Brides, they have a huge selection of earrings, necklaces and bracelets in every style, shape and carat size you can imagine.  The way it works is for a fee you can rent the jewelry of your dreams for a day and return it within a specific time frame.  Some pieces are valued in the thousands... how fun to be able to wear a $15,000 necklace... especially on your wedding day.  Take a look at the site and have fun deciding "should I wear the $12,000 earring studs or the $25,000 diamond chandeliers!" And the best part is no one needs to know how, when or where you got them... 
SHHHH, I'll keep your diamond secret!

and just for the heck of it... Bag, Borrow or Steal

Happy borrowing!
Your wedding planner,
